Answer:

The density of the bread is #"0.2 g/cm"^3"#.

Explanation:

#"density"="mass"/"volume"#

The mass and volume are given in the question:

#"mass=500 g"#

#"volume=2500 cm"^3"#

Plug the known values into the density formula and solve.

#"density"=("500 g")/("2500 cm"^3)="0.2 g/cm"^3"# (rounded to one significant figure)
